Hampshire UK Complete Phase 1 BDUK and BT Superfast Broadband Rollout

Monday, Apr 27th, 2015 (8:31 pm) - Score 1,562

The county of Hampshire in England can celebrate after it recently became the latest Broadband Delivery UK based Government programme with BT to complete its target of ensuring that 90% of homes and businesses can access “superfast” Internet download speeds of 24Mbps+ by the end of 2015.

The Hampshire Superfast Broadband project site states that they have thus “achieved [their] target of reaching over 54,000 premises by the end of the 2014-2015 financial year” (note: around to 59,500 should have benefitted within the wider “fibre broadband” footprint, with over 40,000 of those getting even faster speeds of 50Mbps).

As a result the total number of Street Cabinets enabled with BT’s FTTC Superfast Broadband technology in Hampshire has hit 238. But the work doesn’t stop there and a new deal has already been agreed under the Superfast Extension Programme (here), which will push superfast broadband out to another 34,500 premises (i.e. “at least” 95% of the local population) by “mid 2019 or earlier“.

According to the latest update, we should expect the first roll-out details for their Phase 2 deployment to be published sometime after September 2015. I’ll also give a quick credit to Thinkbroadband for pointing us to this update.
